ESEE-4 Custom Scales Now Available from The-Knife-Connection

The wait is finally over. The new custom scales for the ESEE-4 are finally available for purchase from The-Knife-Connection. You will want to keep a close eye on The-Knife-Connection because they will be releasing new colors and custom scales for other ESEE knives as well, like the ESEE-3.

Not only will these scales be available for purchases individually, you will have the option of purchasing a blade blank without scales. This means that you can pick your blade color, add the handle of your choice, and then choose from several sheath options that The-Knife-Connection carries. You can essentially build your own custom ESEE-4 from the ground up.

You can read more about the scales on the previous post on Jerking the Trigger (I have a set inbound for review at a later date). You can purchase them from The-Knife-Connection.

ESEE Izula-II: The Wait is Almost Over

ESEE recently announced that the Izula-II will be shipping to dealers this week! You can read more about this new version of the Izula in my previous post about the Izula-II.

The-Knife-Connection has them available for pre-order now.

Ka-Bar/ESEE Eskabar

The Eskabar is the result of merging the best parts of two popular neck knives. The Eskabar’s handle is taken from the ESEE Izula and the blade profile is taken from the Becker Necker. The end result is a functional knife with a very lofty pedigree.

The handle of the ESEE Izula should be praised for its versatility. The genius of it is that it isn’t too complex. There are no unnecessary contours or finger grooves. There is nothing that forces you to hold it any one way. It is simple and it works.

The blade of the Becker Necker is a broad drop point with plenty of belly and long flat area near the handle. It is at home dressing a deer or doing fire prep. The belly makes rocking cuts and skinning a breeze while the flat portion of the edge is useful for cutting where more leverage is needed, like notching.

The Eskabar will be available anywhere Ka-Bar Knives are sold.

New ESEE-4 Scales From The Knife Connection

One of the most asked questions about ESEE Knives is “Are there different scales available for purchase?” ESEE has decided not to offer replacement scales but The-Knife-Connection has decided to fill that gap. The free market works!

 

The scales extend the length of the handle and provide a "beak" for additional grip. Click to enlarge.

 

The scales aren’t just simple copies of the original scales. They actually add some functionality in the form of a slight palm swell and some additional length. Some people find the ESEE handles to be a bit short so these replacement scales will be a welcome upgrade for them.

 

The contours will be appreciated by many users. Click to enlarge.

 

The-Knife-Connection will be offering these scales in several colors of G-10. They are machined to ensure a consistent fit. They will eventually have scales for other ESEE Knives as well, like the Izula and ESEE-3. You can see more pictures and read more about the scales at the ESEE Forum on BladeForums.com.

Boker Plus Tom Krein Pocket Bowie

The much anticipated Boker Plus Tom Krein Pocket Bowie is finally finding it’s way to dealer shelves. This knife is the result of a collaboration between Boker and knife maker Tom Krein. Krein has a reputation for great handles and scary sharp edges. This Boker Plus Pocket Bowie looks like it lives up to that reputation.

It features a 2 1/2″ blade crafted from 440C steel. The overall length is 4 3/4″. This really is a Pocket Bowie. It wears black G-10 scales with white spacers on its nicely shaped handle. The Pocket Bowie comes with an excellent looking kydex sheath all for a street price that is under $30!

This is going to be one hot seller.

Patch Collecting: ESEE Izula Patch

The original ESEE Izula is a great knife and it has been a runaway success. It makes sense that such a great knife should also get a great patch!

This one is available exclusively from EM Gear.

Just Announced: The Izula-II from ESEE Knives

 

ESEE Knives introduced a new version of their excellent Izula. The Izula-II will have essentially the same blade as the original Izula but it will feature a handle that is 1/2″ longer. It will come with removeable, full coverage canvas micarta scales. I have found the micarta scales on the original Izula to be a must-have.

Artist renderings of the Izula-II. The product version may vary slightly.

The Izula II should be on dealer shelves in 6-8 weeks. You can read more about the Izula-II on the ESEE Knives Forum at Bladeforums.
